The Construction Livery Group held its 2020 awards ceremony at Mansion House on 2nd March 2020. The awards date back to 2001 when Masters certificates were first awarded to those who hold leading positions in their profession. These were then extended to include awards for Journeymen and Apprentices.
This year there were a record 15 Livery Companies presenting their awards at the ceremony, which is now an established, high profile, date in the Lord Mayors calendar each year.
This year the Master Lightmonger read the charges for our Master Certificate award to Mark Major, our Journeyman Certificate Award to Scott Window and our Apprentice Certificate Award to Sapper Andrew Mawhinney. The certificates were presented by the Rt Hon the Lord Mayor, Alderman William Russell.
Mark Major is a principal and founding partner of Spiers and Major Architectural Lighting Consultants and has worked on a wide range of award-winning lighting projects in many parts of the world including the Millennium Dome, Beijing International Airport, Royal Festival Hall and the interior of St. Paul’s Cathedral. He acted as the Lighting Design Advisor to the Olympic Delivery Authority for London 2012 and has a longstanding interest in lighting education, lecturing extensively in Europe, Scandinavia, US and Australia. He was created a Royal Designer for Industry in 2012.
Scott Window graduated from the UCL in Light & Lighting and then joined the Lightmongers’ Journeyman scheme in 2016. He has moved through a series of appointments in the industry with increasing responsibilities in lighting and electrical engineering, giving him opportunities to extend his expertise in all aspects of lighting. Scott proved to be an exemplary Journeyman and, having completed his journey in November 2019, became a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Lightmongers.
Sapper Andrew Mawhinney undertook the senior Class I Electrical Course at the Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME) in 2019, applying the experience and knowledge that he had gained over the last few years. Part of the course is a design project requiring numerous calculations and the selection of appropriate fittings for the various zones, including the hazardous areas. The Lightmongers have an Education affiliation with the RSME and Sapper Mawhinney is the second candidate from their course to receive a CLG Apprentice Award.
Congratulations to all our Award winners for their tremendous achievements.
